  • Pre/Print heater temperatures

    I currently run a Mimaki JV3-160 solvent ink printer and i was wondering if anybody could tell me what the reason is for a pre-heater and in what circumstances would i adjust the temperature? I am currently having troubles with ink pooling on the media, if i turn up the print heater, the ink will stick but the media cockles and the print head will strike, but if i turn it down, the ink will not adhere to the media and dry fast enough. I am running a fairly slow print speed at 8pass, so slowing the print down anymore isnt really an option either?

    I am also having troubles with the height of the print head, it sits fairly low, so the head is constantly striking and destroying prints, but if i raise the heads to a banner setting, then the print quality is terrible and i get a strange patchy kind of print when printing solid colours...?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanking you in advance

    A slow 8 pass lays down a lot of ink. I'm not familiar with a Mimaki. What media are you using and is the coating receptive to solvent inks?

      Head print is mode high
      materials: decan or Hiflex?
      I think with decan : 720x720 dpi, 4 or 8pass, heater: pre:50 and print:55 C, it will a high quality. with Hiflex : 360x720 dpi, 4pass, heater: pre:40 and print:45 C, it will a high quality.
      what do you use to software printer?
      free contact!!!

        I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

        Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

        In terms of real world critique, if...

        Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

        Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

        The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
